First off, the whole movie is shot beautifully. The wide open locations provided a peaceful feeling amidst a gripping thriller of a movie. There is a particular long, continuous shot at the start of the movie that lets you know you're in for a visual treat on top of an original, compelling story. A lot of frames reminded me of No Country For Old Men and that's a major compliment. The way the kids act in this movie is more accurate than most movies depicting 10-year-olds. This feels like the type of movie you and a couple of friends could go out and make on a couple hundred dollar budget, only it's executed to perfection. The performances are all top notch including two of the best child actors I've seen in a while. Plus Kevin Bacon is as likable as ever. Cop Car manages to tell an extremely engrossing story with a cast of only 4 people. I can now sleep in peace knowing the Spider-Man reboot is in capable hands. This film needs way more recognition than what it's getting. Definitely check this one out!

Should be getting more attentionReviewed bylukerohlingVote: 10/10
Edge of seat drama! The adults are suitably weird/ deranged, but the two young stars completely steal the show. It may have felt particularly compelling to me since they reminded me of some of the kids that I work with, but at any rate their performances felt totally honest. It's hard to know what to compare it to, but in terms of recent films, it feels cut from the same cloth as movies like Winter's Bone, Joe (the 2013 David Gordon Green film), or Mud (the latter two both also feature an excellent young actor, Tye Sheridan). Looking further back in time, maybe think of films like Stand By Me. Regardless, I would recommend this film even if you think you can't stand child actors...or Kevin Bacon...or cop films...or car chases. An exciting feature, hard to believe they packed so much in under 90 minutes. Not for the faint of heart, but if you like suspense, you'll enjoy the ride.
If you like the quirkiness of films like Fargo or Blue Ruin you will enjoy this film. I found the 2 kids to be absolutely adorable and at times hilarious. There's not really much to the plot but it actually works for a film like this. The cinematography and music are excellent and really captures the small town feel of the film. Solid acting all around especially by Kevin Bacon. There are quite a few unbelievable/illogical moments in the film but to me they are forgivable. Original, quirky, beautiful, funny and crazy. Loved it.
